Welcome to the Bronte's Stars Quilt Sew Along!

I am so excited that you have decided to join me for another Sew Along.  This time I have chosen Bronte's Stars after many many requests. I also did a little pol in the Sew Along Facebook group and Bronte's Stars was a popular choice.

My little family and I have recently moved from Melbourne back to our home town of Ballarat to be closer to our parents. Being in lockdown so much of last year makes you realise that time passes so quickly and not being able to see family was so hard. We are already enjoying seeing more of our families, especially Henry. His grandparents are his favourite.

The quilt is actually name after my gorgeous golden retriever Bronte who passed away while I was pregnant with Henry. Funnily enough I had just moved down to Melbourne to live with my partner and was unable to bring my dog as the flat had a shared backyard and no fences. I was missing her terribly and thinking about her constantly while making the quilt that it just seemed right to name it after her.

Bronte's Stars was made to help promote my good friend and fellow designer's fabric range, Rock Pool. Check out the first photo below. The fabric range is no longer available but you might be able to to find something similar. I then made another version using Alison Glass's range Chroma and paired it with an Andover Chambray in black for the background.

The Bronte's Stars Quilt pattern comes in six sizes, Baby, Small Throw, Large Throw, Original, Twin and Queen size.

This quilt is great for showcasing a range of fabrics or mixing it up and creating your own style. Swapping out the light background for a dark fabric can also change the whole look of the quilt and just between you and me, I love a darker background. It can hide pet hair and toddler spills!
